Do you have an office job where you have to dress conservatively and can't always wear the latest colourful trends but you still want to indulge in your passion for beauty? We're here to bring you a few ideas that will complement your chic threads and will add to your pulled-together appearance in a stylishly subtle way!
With the following beauty recommendations, you can take it as far as you want! It’s your choice – incorporate one look for a touch of beauty inspiration, add a second if you want to go one step further, and use all three beauty tips for when you want to nail an entire look! Will you choose just one or all three for a beauty trifecta to rock with your office outfits?
#1 - Ace your base
Smooth skin adds extra polish to your look and applying a primer before any other makeup banishes fine lines and creates a plump, fresh surface with a soft texture. Try the rich, lightweight moisturising formula of MeMeMe's Seventh Heaven Face Base. Enriched with shea butter, vitamin A and beta-carotene, this sweet smelling base will rejuvenate, nourish and hydrate skin. Its active nutrients and extracts also work to brighten smooth and even out skin tone to prime and create the perfect base for make-up application.
#2 - Polished Pout
A classic red lip is one look that some women shy away from, scared it will be 'too much' in an office environment. While it does create a striking look, it also looks very polished and is a way of quickly and easily bringing some colour to your outfit! Savoir Faire's Risqué is a nourishing long lasting matte red lipstick, perfect for a woman on the go with its mirrored case and handy magnetic closure, or alternatively, grab a couple of their Mini Lipsticks to add some colour to your life minus the hefty pricetag - they're only $7.50 each!
#3 -Subtle scent
A fresh and feminine fragrance is a great 'accessory' to your outfit and having a signature scent can be a powerful thing. However, the main thing when wearing a fragrance to work is to not spray too much on - while a light spritz is fine, it's important you don't have a heavy cloud surrounding you and giving your co-workers a headache! For a fabulous statement scent, we love the new Fendi fragrance Fan di Fendi, with its vibrant fruity top notes, floral middle notes and rich base notes of leather and patchouli - divine!
